Congratulations on emerging Mister International Nigeria , how does that make you feel?
I feel so honored that my hard work paid off but at the same time it is really overwhelming and I’m taking everything one step at a time.
What were the challenges you faced during this contest and how you overcame them?
I faced a lot of pressure coming from the management and my fellow contestants. Overcoming it wasn’t so easy, I had to practice a lot to be able to make the necessary improvements.
What would you say stood you out from other contestants?
Honestly I would say my personality. Every organization has something they look for in a contestant and it all lies in their unique personalities.

How long have you been in the modeling?
I have been modeling professionally for about two years now.
What motivated you to contest for Mister Model Nigeria?
I contested for this Pageant to justify my self-assertion that i can compete at the best level and still be productive. This Pageant has over the years, put a strong stride on making it the best Pageant show. Through this Pageant, I could easily reach my goals and become a better person. I find everything about the Misters of Nigeria Pageant encouraging.
How has winning this changed your life?
Winning has changed my life in tremendous ways that words cannot even explain, and I continue to remain focused on how much I want to use this medium to impact change.
What is the plan for you as you are preparing for an international pageant?
